Now is the time to be checking out all those crock pot recipes to throw your wares in, set, and go about your daily routine. Then when you return home, a combination of enticing smells will great you at the door.
I make this recipe often since it is cheap and versatile.
Adding bone-in chicken breasts that are buy-one-get-one on sale at Winn Dixie makes this a real deal! Frozen peas can be had at Aldi for 99 cents and an onion soup packet at the same costs 39 cents. All you need is the 79 cent deal on mushrooms when it's offered and you're set!
Add rice in a slow cooker as soon as you enter your door, and dinner will be ready in 30 minutes!
1 large 3-4 pound package of bone-in chicken breasts with skin
1 envelope of onion soup mix
1 cup water
8 oz. sliced mushrooms
1 medium onion
4 garlic cloves
2 cups frozen peas
Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker. Sprinkle with soup mix, pressing seasonings in. Add water, mushrooms, and garlic. Cook low about 6-8 hours. When you place rice in your rice cooker, add 2 cups of frozen peas to the slow cooker. Both will be done when the rice timer goes off!
